education, making college more affordable, from community colleges, pell grant scholarships and student loans. obama knows the value and education is not just in the books they read. for some students, school is the only place where they get a hot meal and a warm hug. teachers are sometimes the only ones who tell our children they can go from an indian reservation to the ivy league, from the home of a struggling single mom to the white house. our schools are wary passed down our stories and our history. in my family, that american history goes back centuries, residence,e first presiden native americans. obama understands the native american story involves both painful chapters and hopeful ones. he knows that the native american story is part of america's story, and that we deserve to be part of the american dream. that is why he welcomes the tribal nations to the white house and joined them at the table. he signed the settlement to correct a long standing investment that the late eloise cabell spent 15 long years fighting for. he has made investments to prevent violence against women an
